2018 – another wonderful year!
Happy New Year everyone!
As a new year commences, we always love looking back at the year gone by, to reflect on all the wonderful weddings and events that we have been lucky enough to plan.
2018 has once again been a fabulous year for Planned for Perfection, with more fantastic memories of incredible weddings and parties. We have thoroughly enjoyed planning such amazing events and thank our couples and clients for entrusting us to plan their celebrations.
We have travelled throughout the UK into London, Hampshire, Surrey, Oxfordshire, Dorset and the Cotswolds, as well as further afield to Italy, Portugal and Spain for some truly incredible luxury weddings and events.
The year started with the owner of Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium, Elizabeth Solou, invited us to join her in bringing the world famous Karen Tran Floral Masterclass to London. Elizabeth asked for Planned for Perfection to arrange the finale gala dinner for a host of wedding VIP’s at London’s iconic Lanesborough hotel. The evening was a huge success and we look forward to announcing dates of the next masterclass very soon.
The incredible evening was featured on Five Star Wedding Directory Smashing the Glass Flowerona Beloved Wedding Blog Strictly Weddings Want that Wedding FabUK Magazine UKAWP WildAbout and MOD weddings as well as our own Planned for Perfection blog. The amazing highlights from the evening can been seem below, filmed by Vogue wedding films:
Our wedding year began with a Spring wedding at Cripps Barn, for USA based couple A&R. We then to the barn later in the year, when we helped J&J plan their perfect English wedding in the Cotswolds.
We love planning destination weddings and visiting Italy is always such a pleasure. This year we found Aquapetra resort hotel and spa for one of our couples. Aquapetra is hidden in the Italian countryside, just over an hour from Naples. Located within sixty acres of gardens and olives groves and surrounded by a nature reserve, it has it’s own chapel, a relaxing spa and really feels like your own wedding village with your family and friends. K&S hired the hotel exclusively for their wedding weekend and had so much fun that we have already been booked to plan the brides “Big 40” next year!
We also return to one of our favourite venues, Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire. We love planning weddings at Blenheim Palace (after all it was the location of Jane’s proposal!) – so when L&M chose us to help them to finalise plans for their palace wedding, we were thrilled. Our American bride had a clear vision for her day and we helped her to bring that vision to life with Paula Rooney floral designer, which was captured perfectly by the lovely ladies at Barker Evans.
We spent over a year planning R&J’s Summer wedding at the new Palace Yurt at Hilles House in The Cotswolds. Our lovely bride wanted to “bring the outside in” using birch trees, greenery and white roses. The Yurt looked beautiful and we look forward to returning soon.
It is a privilege to be recommended by the team at Sudeley Castle and always a joy to work there. In September, we loved helping F&S’s to plan their beautiful day. The beautiful bride grew up in the Cotwolds, but now lives in London, returning to this beautiful part of the world for her dream wedding.
We plan many weddings in private family homes and love transforming a blank canvas into the most beautiful wedding venue. D&F chose to marry in the local church, close to one of the brides family homes and we spent a week in Dorset overseeing the build and working with a team of fantastic suppliers to bring over a year of planning together.
As is usual with many of our private clients, some couples wish to keep their wedding day celebrations offline. We respect the privacy of those who requested that we sign a confidentiality agreement and we thank those couples who allow us to share their magical memories that we helped them to create. We may not be able to share all our events, but each and everyone is unique and incredible in their own special way.
For the fourth consecutive year, we were thrilled to win Best Wedding Planner in the Cotswolds at The Cotswolds Awards. We are lucky enough to live and work in one of the most beautiful areas in England, a destination that is extremely popular with couples all over the world, so to consistently win a local award is a real honour.
So, here we are in 2019 with lots more beautiful weddings to plan this year. We are looking forward to planning our first wedding at Babington House in Somerset and at Fulham Palace in London. There are so many stunning wedding venues in the world, that we can’t possibly have worked at them all, so it is always exciting to visit new destinations, especially when they are with the most wonderful couples. We are also returning to The Manor House at Castle Coombe for what is all set to be the most incredible weekend and have some gorgeous weddings planned at homes in and around The Cotswolds. We are also currently planning destination weddings in locations still to be confirmed and another destination wedding in Italy is being planned for 2020, which we can’t wait for.
Our job would not be possible without our hardworking and amazing team and the dedication from the very best wedding suppliers, who help us to turn the hopes, dreams and wishes of our clients into a reality. Thank you to each and every person that we have worked with – team work literally does make the dream work!
